What Is An Ebook, Exactly?
Interested in ebook publishing services but want to know a little more about what eBooks actually are? A&A Printing created a few points to note.
- An eBook is an electronic book, where its publication is made available in digital form, consisting of images, text, or both. They are readable on the flat-panel display of electronic devices and computers.
- An ebook is typically published in a format that is not editable. In other words, to qualify as an ‘official’ ebook, the most commonly used format is .epub, short for electronic publication. This is to ensure no one can change your content or easily plagiarize it.
- An ebook is reflowable. What this means is that it is optimized for viewing on any device, and will automatically reformat itself to fit the size and screen the reader is currently using.

Other eBook Anomalies
What else makes an eBook disparate? One difference is in the number of words in the typical eBook. There are conflicting viewpoints on this. Many say that just 2500 words constitutes the average eBook, but the fact of the matter is, while there are certainly some this short, this answer is just not accurate. In reality, the average non-fiction eBook is between 40,000 and 75,000 words. If you’re writing fiction, the word count goes up to 100,000, while the average how-to or DIY guide is around 50,000 words.
Another strange anomaly with eBooks is the fact that they have no page numbers upon publishing, so don’t bother referencing any within your text. Lastly, it is important to note that although a .pdf file is not technically an eBook, it is still very common in eBook formatting, including with Amazon for marketing.
Connect With Readers Internationally
If you are an author today, you almost have to have a strong online presence. We live in a world where the more social media connections you have and maintain, the bigger following you have – thus, the bigger fan base you have access to. This fact is very important, because the internet and e-commerce make it possible for self-publishing authors to gain an international following, thus the ability to access a larger fan-base. This equals many more people who will potentially buy your books!
